He

He who gave us life in this dry dead land
will see us grow water from sour sand

He who poured rain down for our rose to grow
can't see our buds wither before the show

He who set stage for us to act and dine
can't turn the spotlight off when we should shine

He who brings Tempest to our island shore
can't leave us on Earth so lonely and sore

He who blessed us with a spirit so strong
can't see us in despair and go so wrong

He who blessed on us with the art to think
can't leave us so clueless without a wink

He who has made heaven and earth for us
can't have us beg for pennies in a bus

He who controls all possession and wealth
can't leave us in the dungeon with no breath

He who crafted us in black, brown and white
can't bare see us slay each other in fight

He who gave us this heart to care and love
can't watch us arrogant from high above

He who runs the blood in our every vein
can't be that far from us when we're in pain

He who gave us such worthy wings to fly
will never let us fall, drop dead and die

Tomorrow's Land

The night began too early, late last night
It was the fall of hope, the warmth of light

Deprived of sleep, alone, lonely in heart
Tried leaving the coffin, dead to depart

Kept crawling back and forth, torn dreams in sight
Pain in body and bones, cursed cramped so tight

Shaking shivering the chill with dried lips
Sweating cold, wet, freezing, feeling the whips

Reminiscence call, came haunting from door behind
Remembering better days when the world still shined

Memories came of youth, of love, of vows and hopes
When placed my faith in fate and fate in fair, all ropes

Damn! this damned Destiny had tricked me once again
To think that the sacrifice today be in vain

Tomorrow, tomorrow will bring us the king our demise
With no Lady Love and the fighting forests right behind

For time will wave and wash away our castles in the sand
For tide will come and drift away all that we hold in hand

For hope is nothing but a forgotten grain buried in the sand
That we hold dear today but it's no more in tomorrow's land
